Default Any reviews on DC designs?

Has anyone reviewed those Limos, buses, and cars modified by DC designs? Is the build quality any good?

Look at this Mercedes E240, I honestly feel he has royally screwed it in the face.

Some of his designs are nicer, & futuristic, but are they making any progress? I liked the mods to the Amby.

His only good esigns are the ones based on the Tata Sierra, and the HM Ambassador. Every other car is just beefed up (body is bloated up excessively, making it look very FAT, not MUSCULAR), and no engine tunign, which means pathetic performance. All the guy does is charges ya 3 lakh+ for writing his name all over the same car. Another good design, however, was his Aston Martin...
The uild quality is very good, but the 'design' is bullsh*t... the guy probably sneezed and outlined his goop on paper and sold it to some sucker...

The design wan't his, it was Henrik Fisker. DC just did the prototyping job. Cheap skilled labour at it's best.

Hey guys.
DC is not all that bad.
He is a modifier who just has too do what his customers ask.
I dont think he will make such ugly stuff on wheels and expect people to appreciate it

I've only seen very few good designs. The ones on the link pasted here can be described as crap as best. Also, I'll never forgive him for turning the MR2 into that piece of Taarzan crap.

i think dc charges too much and his designs really suck.the only good thing as jesal said are his alloys and that is because he doesnt design them. he just picks them up.if he designed the alloys too, the entire car would look sick !!!

DC sucks.
All his designs are always inspired from someone else. Just don't understand as to how can people spend so much on DC works.

Some of his initial works were indeed good.
But his Phataque on the splendor, caliber or any other bike was simply disgusting.

Look at the Lextran bus, the body is so high that the bus feels like it make overturn anytime.

The only designs that look OK are the Tempo Traveller works. Even there he sucks. DC will give everything from a central AC, a bathroom and what not, but he doesn't have the common sense to upgrade the suspension to carry the extra load.

This is what I saw in an SRK Tempo Traveller done by DC.

Also the paint quality of DC is superb, but then his charges are also superb.

O the whole, DC sucks. It's a pain to watch DC design works.

yea charged me almost 1.5 laks for paint and alloys that come for 20k i paid 70k for them. its more of a brand name now than anything else. its just that others are way too low profile so people who have nothing to do with extra money go to DC and go like what are u gonna design today
